West Bromwich Albion are willing to break their club-record transfer fee to land Watford striker Troy Deeney this summer, according to The Mirror.

The Baggies have had an excellent Premier League campaign in 2016-17, with Tony Pulis’ men overachieving and looking set for a top-half finish.

However, West Brom are overly reliant on Salomon Rondon in the final third and their manager is surely keen to reinforce this summer.

The Hawthorns outfit broke their club transfer record by signing Nacer Chadli for £13 million last summer, but it is looking increasingly likely that the Baggies will spend a higher fee at the end of the current campaign.

Deeney has been a key reason why Watford have acquitted themselves so well in the Premier League over the last two seasons, with the burly targetman proving he can score regularly in the top flight of English football.

While the Hornets will surely be keen to hold onto their attacking talisman, a bid in the £20 million region could tempt the Vicarage Road side to sell up.
